2018 Field Studies

Field Study: Overnight at Plimoth Plantation

Date: May 11 - 12
Location: Plimoth Plantation, Plymouth, MA
Registration Fee: $350

You will step into the world of the Pilgrims for a night by dressing up in colonial costumes, helping to make a delicious hearth-cooked meal, and playing games that the settlers would have known from their homes in England. Enjoy a behind the scenes tour and bed down for the night in a reconstructed Pilgrim house to experience the sights, sounds, and smells of an evening in early Plimoth Colony!

Field Study: The Civil War in Your Community

Date: July 9 - 11, 2018
Location: St. Gaudens, Cornish, NH
Registration Fee: $525 (2 graduate credits available for additional fee)

Day 1: The Civil War in Myth and Memory. What messages do monuments send? Why were Civil War monuments erected and how do the layered messages from the past impact society today? We will use monuments at St. Gaudens as a case study and hear from one teacher about how her high school students have wrestled with these questions.

Days 2 & 3: Learn how to develop a Project Based Learning unit on researching Civil War soldiers. We will investigate a graveyard, learn how to find primary sources online and in your community, and discuss creative ways for students to share their projects with the community. Considerable time will be available for individual work-time.
